Remember the very first DmC Devil May Cry trailer that showed Dante at some sort of rehabilitation facility? Capcom and Ninja Theory haven’t talked much about that aspect of his background, but this morning, we got a few more background details on Dante’s past.
We already know that Dante is half angel and half demon, and has been described as a “street brawler,” due to having grown up on the streets and fending for himself. Now, we also know that he spent the majority of his youth in various institutions, orphanages, youth correction facilities and foster homes. The catch is, most of these were run by demons and usually involved torture of some sort.
As a result, Dante has grown up with no respect for society and authority, and a hatred of demons in particular, despite being half-demon himself. Capcom say that Dante takes the side of the underdog in what he sees as an unfair society.
Alongside the screens and background information, Capcom also showed off artwork of Dante’s weapons: Rebellion and Ebony & Ivory. Both weapons have been designed to feel like they were crafted a long time ago.
